The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is an image composition and
editing program.

Marsu discovered a stack overflow bug in The GIMP RAS file loader. An
attacker could create a carefully crafted file that could cause The GIMP to
crash or possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was opened by a
victim. (CVE-2007-2356)

For users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, the previous GIMP packages had a
bug that concerned the execution order in which the symbolic links to
externally packaged GIMP plugins are installed and removed, causing the
symbolic links to vanish when the package is updated.

Users of The GIMP should update to these erratum packages which contain a
backported fix to correct these issues.
